Scio is a small community in the northwestern part of Oregon, that's south of Portland, and just 25 miles southeast of Salem. With the coast to the west and a band of national forest to the east, this charming farming town values its furry farm hands, and the Scio Animal Clinic is always ready to respond to resident, or visiting, pups' needs.

Take your pup to the 28-acre Roaring River Park for fishing and hiking. A snifftastic walk down to the Roaring River and along the bank for a refreshing splash in the summer, or to watch for fish. The open areas of the park are an excellent place for some fetching or frisbee. Make it a vacation and reserve one of fifty camping spots available in the park. Under the dense shady forest, you'll be serenaded by the sounds of the river not far away. 

The Buell-Miller Country Park is a rustic area with a widened road to allow fishermen and boaters to launch boats in the North Santiam River. The location is a great spot to walk your pup to the river and along the rocks next to the river. Pack a lunch and enjoy a scenic break as you take a few minutes to enjoy the beauty of the river, and Fido splashing at the water’s edge. The area also features a restroom and boat ramp, but you'll need to bring your own water.

Whether just passing through, or staying for awhile, Scio is your quiet getaway from it all!

    You and your pup will enjoy a snifftastic adventure at the Sweetbriar Train and RV Park. This 19-acre wooded park has majestic trees, wide open meadows and a creek that runs through the property. The beautiful park surroundings make an excellent place for a picnic to enjoy a little more time outdoors. Take a ride with your pooch on the train, or come in October to hike through this very sincere pumpkin patch to pick your family pumpkins for Halloween jack o' lanterns. You can also camp in the RV park where your pooch is welcome on leash. What a fun place to spend the weekend!

    In Stayton, just eight miles from Scio, stop in at the Wilderness Park just on the outskirts of town. Hike throughout the 55 acres near the Santiam River to take advantage of the tree lined paths, river front views and wilderness areas for an invigorating, or easy stroll with your pup. Let your pup romp in the many grassy areas found here, but be sure to keep him on leash. While there are a few trash cans and clean up bags available, be sure to bring your own water.

    #5 Sublimity

    Take a 36 minute drive to the nearby town of Sublimity to explore the amazing Silver Falls State Park. With over 9200 acres, this is the largest park in the entire state! Grab that leash and hike over 35 miles of trails here. The Trail of Ten Falls will take you past amazing waterfalls that will cause you both to pawse in awe. Do keep your pup leashed here, as bears and cougars do live in some parts of the park. The South Falls day use area caters to those who like the amenities of a regular park, with picnic areas, a playground, and even an off leash area for pups to play unhindered! You just can't see it all in one day, so book your spot at the capmground and nestle in with your pup under the stars.
